Verandah House

Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan​
500 sqyd

This house designed for a young couple is a simple structure nestled into a landscaped court. It allows for a synthesis of indoor and outdoor living.Spatially, by creating a simple plan centered around a verandah at the ground level, the house attempts to allow the experience of the landscape to bleed into the experience of the interior spaces.

The verandah creates a threshold between the wind catching courtyard, and the deeper spaces inside, while creating opportunities to pause and enjoy everyday moments.
The earthy finishes such as terracotta and light plaster come together beautifully to keep the space rooted, light and airy.

The Verandah House is a simple house, it allows one space to breathe in the scent of gentle breezes and enjoy the sunlight filtering through plants and trees.
